We have streamlined the registration process, so as to minimize the usage of brain power by Jim (as there is so little of it left). While he will still be keeping the official registration roster, the process itself is now available in an online form at: Register.

To register, at no cost, simply go to the web page. Enter your DOA Number and a few other pieces of information necessary to complete the process. There *is* a math quiz at the end, so you might want to brush up on those finger-counting skills ahead of time.

If you don't know or can't remember your DOA Number (yes….some people actually forget it), send an email to Wayne / The membership wizard can look it up, make sure you are who you say you are through a simple retina scan, and reply back with your digits.

If you are under 18 years old and wish to register for the event, you will need to be accompanied by a parent / legal guardian. The registration process will ask you for that additional information, and you'll need to add it. You won't have to wear an "I AM UNDER 18" t-shirt or funny hat at the event, but we do have to abide by the rules of accompaniment.

If you'll be getting a hotel room for in the area for the festivities, there is a box on the form to check. It won't automatically reserve a room for you or sneakily dip into your PayPal account, but it will give us a better idea of how many rooms to get blocked out for the group. We don't have the final hotel details yet, and it's probably not going to be one that we've used in the past, so you may want to hold off on making a reservation anywhere. Again……we're still working on it. BUT your early RSVP's (pronounced as Rizz Vipps) will give us a better idea when doing hardline negotiations for a room rate.

Even if you are in the Greater Tampa/Clearwater/St. Pete Metropolitan Area, you might consider staying at the hotel. For starters, it's just more fun to hang with a band of miscreants, malcontents, ne'er-do-wells and neanderthals. Additionally, it could be easier on you and your budget, should there be drinking involved (nudge nudge wink wink and Bob's your uncle). To answer the question of "has this group been known to indulge in the past?"……ummmm, yeah.

That's four If's in a row. Enough of those.

Once you've completed the Registration Process, you will get an email containing your provided details. Check everything over for accuracy. Should it be necessary to fix something, you can edit your registration. Not that Jim doesn't LOVE to get email after email of changes to be made to the list (and you know damned good and well who you are…..), but this does again preserve that precious little remaining mental capacity of his.

Yes, the dreaded Bailure is also an automated process. There's no shame in it, as it does help us have the oh-so-important ballpark headcount.

We're working very hard to make this one of the best DOA Events ever to grace the mid-west Florida coastal region. Don't miss out on the celebration of 15 Years of the DOA.
